7.) Beetlejuice
19.) Field of Dreams (?)
29.) Blazing Saddles (?)

Trick question is originally from “On the Waterfront”, but I’m pretty sure that’s not the movie you’re referencing here.

Mmm… 14 looks like it’s from Cars, that part at the end where they’re showing the Cars-verse version of Toy Story and some others.

I only knew four, and three of them have already been answered (although I can add that it was Michael Keaton playing Betelgeuse in Beetlejuice, and that it was Alan Rickman in Last Action Hero even though I can’t remember the character’s name)…but for the fourth, number 27 is ‘Strange Days’, with Ralph Fiennes playing a character whose name I can’t remember.

For the record, BTW, I would have ended ‘Last Action Hero’ with Alan Rickman making his huge, melodramatic speech about, “This isn’t the movies, and here, the bad guys can win!” and then forty cops bursting onto the roof, because he was waving a gun around in the middle of a heavy-security major Hollywood premiere party. Rickman smirks, takes aim at the cops…and gets shot forty-seven times, because unlike the movies, these aren’t disposable extras whose job is to die to show how bad-ass the villain is. They’re real cops, and they shoot him dead.

Danny helps Slater to his feet, and they look down at the bullet-riddled corpse. “Seems kind of…anti-climactic,” Slater says. “What do you expect?” Danny says. “This isn’t a movie, it’s real life. Come on, let’s get you back through that screen.”

Double-post, but…ack! I was wrong! It wasn’t Rickman at all! I guess my brain just mentally imposes Alan Rickman on all suave master criminals in 80s movies. :)

I believe Fiennes’s character’s name was Lenny. But it’s been too long since I’ve seen that film. I remember Michael Wincott being in it and Angela Bassett kicking ass and automatically-transcribing answering machines and that’s about it.

I got Beetlejuice, Seven Samurai, Groundhog Day, Field of Dreams, Blazing Saddles, and the Hudsucker Proxy. That one was Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character, name escapes me. Plus:

8) Once Upon a Time in the West – Jason Robards as Cheyenne
22) The Last Detail – Jack Nicholson as Budduskey
27) Strange Days – Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero
33) The Bridge on the River Kwai – Alec Guinness as Colonel Nicholson

The trick question is Robert Di Niro as Jake LaMotta, Raging Bull.

#13 is Toshiro Mifune as Kikuchiyo, The Seven Samurai.
#28 is Harvey Korman as Heddy…no, that’s HEDLEY Lamarr, Blazing Saddles.

#10 is killing me. I keep thinking it’s Mask of Zorro, but that line is “Fighting like a lion, fighting like a TIGER, FIGHTING… as safely as possible”. So I’m stumped, but I’m pretty sure it’s a similar situation of a hero telling glory stories to his child before getting cut off by a glare.

I’m pretty sure 14 is Toy Story.. Woody says it to Buzz Lightyear at the gas station.

8 is Jason Robards as Cheyenne in Once Upon a Time in the West, by Sergio Leone.

9 is Peter Sellers as Clouseau in A Shot in the Dark.

13 I haven’t seen it, but this has to be from Seven Samurai. It’s the sort of thing Calvera would have said, if he knew about sake and rice.

21 is Sergeant Apone in Aliens, by James Cameron. I can’t remember the actor, though.

28 is Charles Dance as Benedict in Last Action Hero.

29 again, no actor, but it’s Hedley Lamar in Blazing Saddles by Mel Brooks.

You’re right on #10 CapnAndy, just in the prolouge rather than the denoument.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say 23.) was J Jona Jameson from Spider Man 2, talking about Doctor Otto Octavius.

Shit. I’m wrong.

Yeah, #10 is killing me too. I want to say The Fisher King, but I think that’s wrong. Or possibly Reign of Fire. Gaaah.

#23 is John Mahoney’s character…first name Al, can’t remember the last name…in The Hudsucker Proxy.

I’m pretty sure #24 is John Neville in Baron Munchausen, in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

#25 is Bill Pullman as Darryl Zero in The Zero Effect.

I guess the trick question is Jake LaMotta quoting On The Waterfront in Raging Bull.

24. Phht. John Neville as Baron Munchausen facing down Jonathan Pryce in the Adventures of same.

26. Lols! William Shatner as “Bill” in Free Enterprise.

I got three…

19 is Bull Durham
21 is Aliens
29 is Blazing Saddles

The only character I would’ve been able to name from memory was Apone.

I need to watch more movies. :( (I did see Pump Up The Volume–I recommend getting the soundtrack btw–but it was too long ago for me to remember that particular quote. If you’d included the one where he mentioned the cock ring I’d probably have gotten it.)

2.) “I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! It wasn’t my fault, I swear to God!”

John Belushi as Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers.

9.) “Listen to me, Hercule, and you will learn something. Now then, the facts in this case are: the body of the chauffeur was found in the bedroom of the second maid. Fact! Cause of death: Four bullets in the chest. Fact! The bullets were fired at close range from a .25 caliber Beretta automatic. Fact! Maria Gambrelli was discovered with the murder weapon in her hand. Fact! The murder weapon was registered in the name of the deceased, Miguel Ostos, and was kept, mind you, in the glove compartment of the Ballon Rolls-Royce. Fact! Now then, members of the household staff have testified that Miguel Ostos beat… you fool, Hercule. You have broken my pointing stick. I have nothing to point with now.”

Peter Sellers as Inspector Cluseau in A Shot In the Dark.

10.) “And suddenly lightning flashed, and a mighty thunder shook the wasted land, and the evil king glared at the good prince and said… something very forgettable.”

Anthony Hopkins as Don Diego de la Vega in The Mask of Zorro.

13.) “Well, what do you think farmers are? Saints? They are the most cunning, untrustworthy animals on earth. If you ask them for rice, they’ll say they have none. But they have. They have everything. Look in the rafters, dig in the ground. You’ll find it. Rice in jars. Salt. Beans. Sake. Look in the mountains, hidden farms everywhere. And yet they pretend to be oppressed!”

Toshiro Mifune as Kikuchiyo in Shichinin no Samurai.

24.) “Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I’m delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.”

I believe this is the title character in The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen.

29.) “I want you to round up every vicious criminal and gunslinger in the west. Take this down… I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists!”

Hedy Lamar in Blazing Saddles.

31.) “You can’t live with ‘em, you can’t live without ‘em. / There’s something irresistible-ish about ‘em. / We grin and bear it ’cause the nights are long. / I hope that something better comes along.”

Rolf, playing himself, in The Muppet Movie.

THE TRICK QUESTION: “You don’t understand, I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody. Instead of a bum, which is what I am, let’s face it.”

It’s a slightly misquoted version of Brando’s famous line in On the Waterfront, but I’m not sure where it’s from.
